New Processing Technology Underscores MEMS Role in Semi


It was with great excitement that I read about latest advancement in MEMS manufacturing, DigiTimes 21 Aug 2009.  While DigiTimes noted that TSMC declined comment, news is out of their "one-stop production processes" for MEMS via CMOS! 

This is BIG news.

Why?  Well, as DigTimes goes on to note, and as we know, this new processing "is expected to impact on [sic] pure MEMS IC foundries because it completes the whole production from logic IC manufacturing to MEMS IC, which is usually transferred to specialized MEMS foundries.  In addition, customers can more than halve the costs of MEMS IC production [...]."

Tell me more?! 

You can read more about MEMS and why this is important and exciting news in our last issue of MarketWatch Quarterly, "The Small Revolution: MEMS is a game changer."

What are your thoughts on MEMS?
